Cara, an Aglaonema Crete, or Chinese Evergreen, was brought to the UK in the late 1800s, and became popular because of her low-maintenance properties. The name Aglaonema comes from the Greek word for bright, ‘Aglos’, and thread, ‘nema’, due to her variegated leaves.

Native to South East Asia, Cara is most commonly found basking in the dappled light under large tropical trees.

Cara, Aglaonema Crete

  • Cara prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.

    If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:

    • Minimal shadow = lower light
    • Half shadow = indirect light
    • Full shadow = direct sun

Plant care basics


Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!


Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.


Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
